Advent II (redux)

Carpenters, over here and listen up.
And all the rest, you guys can go on home.
Don't you worry, all you clowns who showed up
will get paid for the full shift, and then some.

First off, all of these roof beams need to be
lowered. Not altered, all the way to the
ground. What about the pavilion? There is no
pavilion, get it? No roof, no walls, no

nothing. No skylight neither. There is no
building, you dunces. You just needed to
move the manger a few hundred metres
further out from the town. Was that so hard?
You geniuses even unroll the blueprints?
And no, you can't put fresh straw in it.


  1. I like where you're going with these, Bobby.

    1. Hey Amber,
      Thanks for your note. I have two more "Advent" poems planned - hope they will make a worthwhile set.
